'It's not me, it's you' by Lily Allen - CD

The outspoken mockney popstrel Lily Allen's debut album, 'Alright Still', established her as the voice of a new breed of young person, and the long-awaited follow-up 'It's Not Me It's You' is full of similarly zeitgeist-inflected tunes. The first single, 'The Fear', is somewhat heavier in tone than previous singles such as 'LDN' and 'Smile', and sees Allen dealing with notions of modern celebrity, a theme that continually crops up on the album. Allen also confronts political issues on this markedly more adult album than its predecessor, perhaps intentionally preparing a more mature image for the future (CD description).
Lily Allen has continued her catchy songs with an album that may not be for the fainthearted! She has continued the use of witty (and sometimes rude...) lyrics, so it is perhaps not best for the little ones to hear it. If you enjoyed Lily's last album, you will probably like this one too.
Rating - I give this 4/5 Not bad!
Get this CD from the library
